My name is Hila Benmergi, I am a professional face painter, body artist and owner of Hila face painting.
From as far back as I can remember I have always had a love and passion for Art. It wasn’t until I had my little girl. I remember the look on my daughter’s face the first time she had her face painted and how it was days before I could get her to wash it off. I became a professional face painter after years of learning all the techniques, designs, safety measures, and volunteering at a variety of functions. I started my business in 2012, however my artistry began as a child. Today, I continue to learn the hottest designs and newest techniques in the business. I believe that my customers needs are of the utmost importance and I am committed to meeting those needs – As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals.
I enjoy entertaining and working with kids. My favorite part is watching their face light up when they see the design I created and My goal is to make your next event unique and very memorable
So whether you are planning your child’s birthday party, a family picnic or your company’s grand opening, I can help make any event successful and memorable. High quality face painting – including glitter tattoos, Available for events of all sizes, from small private parties to large corporate events.
My rates cover the absolute best face painting products in the industry, artist travel expenses, and the painting and glitter tattoo services. My face paint and glitter tattoo supplies are 100% safe, non-toxic, and FDA compliant. Be aware of painters who use acrylics or other craft paint for face painting! Craft paint is much less costly than professional face paint, but poses an unacceptable health risk.

I would love to help you with your fundraising efforts! While I am unable to donate my time and materials for free, I have worked out three different options for charity events:
- Pay Per Face (raising money for you) – I will appear at your event to do face painting while charging my standard “pay per face” rates to the patrons of the event. At the end of the event 25% of the collected money benefits your group/charity and the rest covers my costs and materials.
- Hourly with Tips – I offer you my discounted hourly rate, and appear at your event to do face painting that is free for patrons. I set out a “donation jar,” with a suggested donation of $5. ALL of the tips/donations go to your fundraising efforts.
- Discounted Hourly (free for patrons) – I offer you a discounted hourly rate since it is a fundraiser. You can then either “sell” tickets for face painting for whatever price you choose, or offer painting for free for your patrons.
